Abstract: The National Archives of Bangladesh (NAB) evolved to ensure official custody and physical safety of the archival resources mainly government records of the country. With regard torelease their resources on an open access environment, NAB has initiated a digitization programme. Though the initiative is praiseworthy, the facilities are yet inadequate to make the project sustainable. The main focus of this paper is to overview different aspects of NAB’s Open Access programme where it used secondary and primary data. The study identified the shortcomings and put forwarded some recommendations, with special preference to a proposed model of Archives Literacy, which eventually will ensure effective completion of the programme.
